Event Management System (EMS):

 

A software application that monitors activity and transactions in a distribution center and triggers workflow or alert messages based on pre-defined triggers and thresholds. So, a message could be sent via email, text message and/or desktop alert if throughput falls below the targeted level, or when each truck is closed, as just a couple of the many potential examples of events that could be used. Companies can use third-party event management software, but some WMS providers include an internal EMS as part of their solution.
